Awkward truths?

Tue, 8 Mar 2011

In yesterday’s Guardian, Polly Toynbee speaks out in praise of Conservative science minister David Willetts for proceeding with plans for a new birth cohort study.

She writes: “Many years from now the scale of the Cameron cuts falling on the poorest families will show up in comparisons between the life chances of the Blair 2000 birth cohort and those of the Cameron 2012 cohort. So congratulations to Willetts for making sure history records the awkward facts.”
